Just a Preliminary Judgement

It was just a damage assigned done by 12 intelligent Californians - a contradiction in terms if I ever saw one. Juries always award ridiculous settlements because it does not cost them anything - in spite of the fact that in the long run it does. The same people who are on the jury will then complain that their favorite product is either off the market or costs more.

After all the appeals, reduction in judgement by upper courts, and discussions between the 2 companies, the likely outcome will be either that the judgement will be overturned, the judgement will be reduced to a reasonable amount, or the companies will agree to cross license patents.

Also, being able to patent look-and-feel is IMHO opinion absurd. I am surprised that someone does not try to patent the number "1" or the decimal numbering system.
